Impact Student Ministry is changing the lives of Middle and High School Students
by introducing them to a growing and active life with Christ.
The above statement isn’t just a catchy slogan, it’s what IMPACT is all about. A life with Jesus Christ is exciting, challenging, and the most rewarding experience a person can have and we want to introduce and encourage middle school and high school students to begin and develop that kind of life. You can download a detailed copy of our Philosophy of Ministry here.
By being a part of IMPACT, you’ll be a part of a group of your peers who are developing that same relationship with Christ. You can expect to be a part of fun and meaningful youth worship events, deeper discussion in a smaller group of students your same age, and lots of other opportunities for special events like worship events, mission trips, retreats, and other monthly special activities.
PARENTS: We require that students participating in off-campus activities have an annual Medical Release Form filed with the Church Office. This form provides important medical information and serves to protect both your student and the church in the unlikely event of an emergency medical situation. If the student is under 18 years of age, this form must be notarized. For your convenience, we will be organizing opportunities for you to meet with a notary here at the church.
